    One spins clockwise and the other counter clockwise, not sure which is which without looking.

    DrewFlies, other than the threads, the props are exactly the same. The black and silver tipped motors spin in opposite directions -- which is why you need two of each prop. When installing your props, make sure the black topped props go on top of the black topped motors -- and the same for the silver tops.

    The black hub props goes on the black spindles, and the silver ones go on the silver spindles.

    Page sixteen of the Manual.

    You just seem to bring out the best in folks I guess.

    Reasoning, this indicates that you did not read any of the manuals yet. Please do so before you fly. Otherwise we are going to reading another post about an uncontrolled crash.
